Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Chiropractic treats the body as an integrated network of systems and aims to treat pains and illnesses at their route while promoting the overall health of the body. By correcting misalignment of the spine and joints and utilizing non-invasive treatment methods, our chiropractors at Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation help the body heal from a variety of issues, including soft-tissue injuries and muscle spasms. One common method that our practice uses to achieve healing is electrical muscle stimulation.
Electrical muscle stimulation is an effective way to relieve pain and help the body heal. It works by sending a small electrical current into the affected muscles, which causes the brain to send a nerve impulse to the motor point of the muscles and tell it to expand and contract. The expanding and contracting leads to the release of the body’s natural pain relievers, such as endorphins, which helps reduce swelling and release trigger points that may be causing the muscles to lock up.
While the amount of electricity used in this method is minute, it is enough to serve as an effective therapy for treating soft tissue injuries, muscle spasms and associate pain. When combined with other chiropractic procedures, affected muscles are relaxed and returned to a natural, healthy state.
